  • Possible scam targeting residents, says sheriff

    Harrison County Sheriff Bruce Hampton is advising residents to be cautious of a possible scam that has surfaced locally.
    He said that residents are being approached at their homes by individuals posing as insurance representatives. These individuals are asking to take photographs and measure homes under the guise of updating records.
    “Check people out before you give them any information,” Hampton said, noting that the residents who have so far been targeted do not even have insurance with the supposed carrier.
